The District Chairman and General Leader, Cherubim & Seraphim Movement Church, Surulere Sub-Headquarters, Ayo Ni O, Special Apostle Sunday Funsho Korode has said that the church is carrying spiritual fumigation in their practices as their vision is to prepare men for heaven.
Korede said this in an interview recently in Lagos, said that the kingdom of God is our focus. Our vision is to make heaven. Bible is our road map. We are Pentecostal in dispensation and evangelical in ministry. We want to cater for the people who are in charge of our spiritual lives.
He said that we are also concerned about wellbeing of our members. We have tried to give proper orientation to our people. We are also getting the people know that we are Christ-centric in our practice and that all forms of ritualistic expression and anti-Christ practices is not allowed in the church”.
“Some also start another church because of selfish interest, greed and lust for position and power. Some are already entrenched in idolatry but because it is not normal to advertise such openly they move out of the church to start another group. The veering away gives them an opportunity to wear the garment of the angel of light”, he said.
He lamented unfortunately, the fact is that freedom of worship is guaranteed in the constitution. You can wear the garment and shout like a masquerade and nobody will query you. Some of the brand identity of the C$S are available in the market place. People have access to these things; they buy them and use them to start deceiving people.
He said “a number of things people get into like the use of coconut. Candle and the burning of the strange incense are not allowed in the church. It is important to let our people know that we are de-emphasizing those things. We pray into water and pray with the oil just like many Pentecostals now do”.
He continued: we also want to involve in getting the body of Christ to be one and also be involved in inter-faith activities. These are things that have been put in place by our former leader. We are just building on them. We have help, education, women and a number of other ministries that have been established to address all the areas of concern in the church.
Korede posited further that the vision is also to ensure advocacy at the political and social realms by moderating the excesses of our political leaders”.
